Wickes to end residential parking privileges

Photo of a letter reading; Dear Resident,From -Wickes Home Improvements.
We have allowed residents to park in the carpark over the years. As from next week
(25/4/2022) we will unfortunately require the spaces to be vacant. We will have a carpark
management agency in place called G24. This will be in place to allow customers to park (90
minutes maximum in store hours) as we see an uplift in sales due to the store being refitted
and a reduction in spaces due to the delivery entrance extending.
I hope you understand and support the request.
Kind Regards, Management @ Wickes Stirchley.

Residents who have enjoyed free parking on the Wickes car park have been informed that the offer will no longer be available.

In a letter left on cars today, motorists have been advised that from 25th April 2022 a new scheme will be in place where the Wickes car park will be managed by G24, as they expect an upturn in sales due to the store being refitted. Motorists will be permitted to park for up to 90 minutes in store hours, according to the letter.

The letter states; “Dear Resident,From -Wickes Home Improvements.

Ash Tree Road homeowner Vicky has started this petition to ask Wickes to reconsider the move (click here).

  1. I only found out about this yesterday. I cant understand why Wickes didn’t put this letter through our doors?? Very poor communication. I suppose they are within their rights to withdraw free parking but I hope they and the Council are ready for the sharp increase in resident complaints about noise, waste, and anti social behavious that we have tolerated previously. The businesses on and around Ash Tree Road have no respect for their neighbours.
